    20th Anniversary of Perestroyka - Your Opinion?

    On March 1985, Secretary General of the USSR Michail Gorbachiov announced a new cource for the country, which ended up in many good and bad things for former Soviet Republics, and the whole world as well. What do you think was good about a direction the USSR was heading to, and what do you think of Perestroyka now, 20 years later?

    It helped smoothe the transition to non-communism. Considering that the wheeels were falling off the old Soviet state this was a shrewed way to bring the beast to a halt.

    Default Which is it?

    I sometimes wonder if the supposed old Soviet Union became more like us or if we became more like them.

    Putin would probably say that the Plan is working to perfection.

    I just don't believe everything we've been told about our Russian friends, that's all. I think Russia and China are still our biggest adversaries in this world, and no Time Magazine "Man of the Year" award can change it.

    I don't hate the Russian people. I just don't think the powers that be are our friends.
